New album!

Dear musicfriends,



Interesting times working on the new album, coming thursday 14th of May back in the studio again with my good friend Gerben Klazinga who is one of the best musicians I've ever met ( Knight Area).

Hopefully the album will be ready this summer!

Yesterday I was at present when the talented Merel Hutten introduced her new album "Take a walk" in Amsterdam Credo, she performed several numbers of the CD and she is great!

We're doing a show in february… Continue

Hi Johnny,

My name is Stuart Markus, and I am with an Americana/Roots harmony trio from New York called Gathering Time. Our latest CD, Keepsake, was #1 on Folk DJ-List (the international folk radio chart) in March 2016 with the #1 song and 5 other songs in the top 25, making us the #1 artist for the month also; we came in at #4 for the year.
Since 2012, we have often toured in partnership with an the roots/Americana singer Mara Levine. Her CD Jewels and Harmony was #1 for January 2013 and #3 for that year on the international Folk DJ chart. Typically, we do a set of our own songs as well as backing Mara on hers.
We have been booked together to play a music festival in Ehingen, Germany (near Stuttgart) on Saturday, April 14, 2018, and we're hoping to book a tour in Europe to run from around Saturday, April 7th to Sunday the 15th of next year.
The best way to describe Gathering Time is as a co-ed Crosby, Stills & Nash, with a bit of the Byrds and a jot of Joni Mitchell. Mara Levine is best known as an arranger and interpreter of American traditional songs and those by songwriters of the '60s like Tim Hardin, Leonard Cohen and Paul Simon, as well as contemporary ones.
It is worth noting that we are capable of doing either shows of mostly original songs (or in Mara’s case songs by modern songwriters) OR specialty tribute theme shows entirely of '60s American folk and folk-rock. (Information on those is listed at the 'specialty shows' page of our website. Whichever a venue prefers, we're happy to do.
Full bios, photos, music and videos of Gathering Time are available at www.gathering-time.com, www.youtube.com/gatheringtimetrio and
www.soundcloud.com/gatheringtime; information on Mara (and her music) are available at www.maralevine.com.

Dear Johnny,

My name is Hattie Briggs and I'm a UK pop/folk singer-songwriter (http://www.hattiebriggs.co.uk) and Radio 2 Young Folk Award Nominee 2014.  I'll be heading to the Netherlands with my cellist/backing vocalist, Jasmine, for my third tour out there in March. I've released 2 albums and several EPs.  Here's my second album to check out via soundcloud when you have a moment.  I'm looking to play a house concert on the 21st or 22nd of March and would love to discuss possibilities with you.  I play guitar, keys and ukulele and I'll have all the amps/sound equipment with me on tour.  Here's a live video to give you the vibe https://youtu.be/p852leXrBz0.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

Hattie Briggs,

Hello Hans/Johnny,

My name is Paul Hogeterp and I am a musician/songwriter from Hamilton, Canada.  In November 2014, I released my debut solo record under the moniker Low Country Hill.  The self-titled record was produced by Dave King at his lovely Barn Window Studio on the outskirts of Hamilton.  I am pleased that Pat Sansone from Wilco and Bill Dillon (Joni Mitchell, Robbie Robertson, Peter Gabriel) lent their playing and artistry to the record.  Recently, Low Country Hill received a 2015 Hamilton Music Awards nomination in the Roots/solo category and was a Hamilton regional finalist in CBC Searchlight 2015.
 
I've been playing solo shows (and occasional full band performances) in central Canada throughout 2015 and hope to tour in The Netherlands and Germany in late February/early March 2016.  I've very much enjoyed playing house concerts in Canada and would love to make house concerts the primary focus of a tour in Europe.
 
Please check the links below to find out more about Low Country Hill:
 
 
Thanks for your time, Hans/Johnny.  Looking forward to hearing from you.
Kindly,
Paul

Dear Johnny, hello. My name is Ivor Game, a singer and songwriter from London. I play lots of acoustic shows across the UK and beyond, including The Netherlands, releasing albums and singles along the way. I have enjoyed nice radio play too, from BBC6 and other BBCs, to national across Australia, Japan, Europe and America. I have also been played a few times on The Netherlands AVRO, Radio 2 and Acoustic FM and have had nice reviews in New Folk Sounds Magazine. I love playing my little songs to cosy rooms, and have played many a small coffee bar, and intimate spaces before. You can hear lots of songs, and see a few videos like I Like Being at Home, on http://www.ivorgame.com and more songs on http://www.soundcloud.com/ivorgame. I hope you like the tunes and can consider me for a house concert. Thank you. Hope to hear from you. Kindest regards, Ivor. Ivor Game  ivorgame@btinternet.com

Hi there! Im doing a tour of Holland and Germany starting in just a week and unfortunately a few shows got cancelled recently (partly due to the German law that doesnt allow live music in public during Easter!) so Im reaching out to see if there's a possibility of doing a few concerts in Holland on April 14, 15, 17 or 18.

Here's a review (in German Im afraid) of a show we played last week in Ritterhude: http://www.weser-kurier.de/region/osterholz_artikel,-Hippie-Momente-im-Auesaal-_arid,817095.html .

And here's some links to music, photos, bio, etc:

If there's any possibility of doing a concert on any of those days please do let me know. Looking forward to hearing from you. Many thanks!

Isaac

Johnny

Greetings from Canada! My new cd, Break These Chains has received a 4 star review in this month's Maverick Magazine and is being released to the UK/Europe through Proper Distribution.

We are securing dates for an acoustic tour in May/June and wondered if you would be interested in hosting us for a house concert?

Please visit my website at www.tiamcgraff.com

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Hi,

I was wondering if I could get a moment if your time to listen to something?
It's the title track from Terry Emm's new album. I am booking shows for Terry in 2014 and thought he might suit the music events you put on.
 
Terry's music has recently had airplay from legendary DJ Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2. Bob described Terry's music as 'excellent, excellent music' and has had him in for a live session. BBC 6 Music DJs Gideon Coe, Chris Hawkins and Tom Robinson have also spun his tracks regularly alongside many regional stations. Terry has recently shared the stage with the likes of; Amy Wadge, Richard Walters, Danny & The Champs, Jackie Leven, Judith Owen, Red Dirt Skinners and many others.
MOJO magazine have described his music as 'pastoral, romantic and lit musically by summer rays…no routine singer- songwriter offering but some-thing totally engaging in melody and lyric' in a 4 star review.
It'd be interesting to see what you think to his music and great if you could consider him for a show.
Thanks very much,
Theo Hall
